CLEWISTON -- Clewiston City Manager Randy Martin reported Feb. 6 that the city's animal services division reported the intake of 28 cats and 45 dogs.
On Jan. 18, members of the police department’s Chief and Commanders teamed up with Hendry County Emergency Management staff and installed hurricane panel anchors after an anonymous donor provided the hurricane panels.
The Animal Shelter is now much better prepared to protect our facility and care for animals in the event of a significant storm. A huge thank you to Hendy County Emergency Management for their assistance.
On Jan. 23, an inspector for the Florida Department of Health visited the shelter for a surprise inspection. The Inspector explained that this inspection is completed once every two years and is unannounced.
She checked every expiration date on our vaccines and controlled substances, checked our logs, checked our licenses, and then checked the entire facility for cleanliness.
By the end of the inspection, she learned that since our last inspection we changed to a no-kill shelter. She stated that the place smelled great, the cats and dogs were clean, and everything was in order. She commented that she was “very impressed” with the changes and looked forward to telling the other inspectors about the change.
